When guests arrived without any notice, my Mom used to prepare this sweet. It was a very popular sweet at Mom's place, made of rava. Because it is very easy, simple and quick to prepare.


Rava or Semolina 1 cup
Water 2 cups
Milk 1/2 cup
Sugar 3/4 cup
Cloves 4
Ghee 4 tblsp
Raisins 1 tbsp
Cashew nuts 1 tbsp
Cardamom powder 1/2 tsp
Saffron a few strands, dissolved in little warm milk



Heat kadahi with 3-4 tsp of ghee. Put raisins, cashew nuts and cloves and fry for 2 minutes.
Add Rava and fry on a low heat till you get the fragrance.
Transfer this fried rava to a plate and keep aside.
In the same kadahi pour 2 cups of water, when it is boiling add sugar and stir till it dissolves completely.
Add 2 tbsp of ghee, fried rava slowly in the boiling water. To avoid forming lumps keep stirring. 
Add milk, saffron and 2 tbsp ghee to it and keep stirring.
Finally sprinkle cardamom powder on Sheera..
A dessert, serve hot...

Sheera is known by so many names across the country with different flavours and additions.
what presented here is a very authentically Amchi variety.The colour consistency are all looking great.Goes well anytime of the day as a desert or as a combination.
